Australian beach culture celebrated in Waves & Water Exhibition
Sun, sand and surf are all integral parts of the Australian summer. Now the beach has been further immortalised with an exhibition of photographs taken from the 1930s to now.
The Australian summer is often remorseless and unforgiving, yet the startling beauty of Australia throughout the summer months thankfully overshadows much of the hardship. The beach is one such location that improves with an increase of heat, and many Australian photographers have managed to capture the beach’s iconic nature.
Waves & Water: Australian Beach Photography is an exhibition that showcases many photographs portraying Australian beach culture from 1930 until today. Surfers, swimmers, sunbathers – all are included in this multi-artist showcase. Exhibited photographers include Max Dupain, Ray Leighton, Jeff Carter, Anna Zahalka, Narelle Autio and more – all of whom have contributed images communication the beauty of the beach and its importance to Australians.
The exhibition can be seeing at the Tweed River Art Gallery from December 19 until February 8, and will be the perfect spot to spend some time this summer.
